UFO Conjectures

Why don't gays see UFOs?


Or blacks? Or Latinos? Or any other minority?

UFO witnesses and so-called abductees (experiencers) are invariably white, middle-class or lower class persons.

Aside from Barney Hill and Lonnie Zamora and a very few others, the predominant minority classes are under-represented when it comes to UFO sightings or alleged alien abductions,

Gays never report UFO sightings. (Closeted gays – homosexuals – may do so but those who are overtly gay do not.)

What does this tell us about the phenomenon?

It seems to confirm Carl Jung’s thesis that flying saucers are a myth concocted by the mind of Western Civilization man.


Or, if UFOs are real, tangible objects, they lie outside the interest or experience of those who are suffused with concerns that are more practical or hard-shipped.

That is, UFOs are the purview of those with too much time on their hands or have a need to make their boring lives more interesting.

The panoply of ufologists is comprised of those very middle-class blokes who have no credentials for anything significant.

Persons with careers that mean something are not attracted to ufology. And those who have economic survival needs are not inclined to see or report UFO sightings; they have more immediate interests.

Gays are completely involved with sexual seductions, so UFOs elude their conscious, existential endeavors.


What has sustained the UFO mystery is the rapt attention they get from all those who don’t have a stake in society or any societal cachet. The white, middle and lower-middle class UFO mavens or viewers of UFOs need something to confirm their humdrum existences, and UFOs fulfill a need to make their lives (somewhat) meaningful.

Gays, African-Americans, Hispanics, and other groups making up the sub-stratum of American society couldn’t care less about UFOs, and UFOs don’t impact them or their senses.


But Caucasian members of American society (and that includes white Canadians) have a need to or desire to feel part of the society which ignores them when it comes to making a difference in the world.

Mexico’s inhabitants, excluded by the wealth of its northern neighbor, also are quick to use UFOs to garner a claim to importance that they don’t have economically or politically.

So, one can conclude that UFOs are grist for the desire and needs of the red-necks and/or scruffy members of America’s middle class, with used to be called the Silent Majority, but is very noisy when it comes to UFOs.
